PAINTS' 2012/13 TREND BOOK CREATES THE PERFECT BALANCE: EMBRACING THE FUTURE WHILE
HONORING THE PAST
With over 80 years experience in the world of
paint and color, California Paints has partnered with the international color
trend authority Global Color Research, the publishing house of Mix
publications, to present a unique and inspirational perspective on color trend
Timeless Trends 2012/2013 by California Paints
showcases the best combinations in trend and traditional colors. Color trends
move and change each year based on infinite global influences. However, there
are also those everlasting and classic colors that stand the test of time.
Merging these opposing ideas is the inspiration for Timeless Trends 2012/2013.
With Global Color Research, Mix publications
creates color trend stories used as the inspiration for the color forecast and
California Paints has complimented each of four palettes with companion shades
of classic ageless colors. The result is the perfect balance of old and new,
trend and tradition, fashion and style.
Coastline Palette: Colors inspired by water,
beach, maritime and all things coastal.
However, the Coastal palette doesn't only feature colors reflective of a
day at the beach. In this palette, you
will find the colors of cool water, weather beaten wood, tumbled rocks, as well
as shades from the maritime industry.
Phoenix Palette: Colors inspired by fire,
smoke, heat, and things that smolder.
Bursting with autumnal tones, the Phoenix palette showcases nature's
vivid display of color. Nature's fury
can be distressing yet beautiful. In
this palette you will find the colors of smoky gray, charred black and flames
of red and yellow.
Reminisce Palette: Colors inspired by the
past, memories, nostalgia and all things vintage. Reminisce is a softer palette that whispers
to the past, but with a modernized twist.
In this palette, you will find colors inspired by antique jewelry and
lace, china patterns, aged furniture and faded photos.
Pop Tech Palette: Colors inspired by today's obsession with technology. It seems we live
straddled between the virtual and the real worlds. Computer screens,
televisions and hand held
devices offer crystal clear imagery with vibrant bursts of color. The lively
tones of Pop Tech showcase today's norm of heavy color saturation.
Design of all
kinds benefits from the merger of old and new ideas. We hope you find this
color collection unique, inspiring and the perfect balance of embracing the
future while honoring the past.
2012/13 will be available in March 2012 through California Paints.
